Information to make the most of your fishing adventure...
Outside the regular river season NCFF guides on lakes in the Methow Valley, including private access to Mocassin Lake, one of premier private fly fishing experiences in Washington state.
Number of Anglers
Occasionally we can add a seat for a third person. This is only possible at certain water levels and conditions. Add $100 for third person on half-day trips and $150 for third person on full-day trips. Four or people more requires a second guide and therefore would be priced as 2 trips.
Instruction is always available for whatever level the guest needs. All trips include full-service professional guiding, flies, tippet, wading boots (if necessary), rods (if necessary). Waders are available to rent for $20/pair and are lightweight breathables.
Food & Drink
Snacks and water are provided by your guide on all half day trips. We encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottle as well. Full day trips are not typical based on river and weather conditions. Guides will have coolers to store your items during your trip.
Arrival & Departure
To optimize your experience, NCFF will plan based on current weather and water conditions. We will contact you to discuss your level of experience, your goals, and any accommodations you may need to make the most out of your fishing experience. A night or two before your trip, your guide will communicate all the logistics for your meeting location and time.
What is the cancellation policy?
A full refund will be given if cancellation is made 30 days prior to trip. If trip is cancelled within 30 days, and we are unable to rebook date, a negotiable % will be refunded. based on the circumstances.
